    I have been working at CVS Health part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Work isn't hard. Basic customer setvice and cashier work. Small store less things to get done.

    Cons

    Employees aren't treated that well in my opinion. They day no retaliation on complaints but it all friends on the person and their personal relationship with you. Part time is only entitled to about 4 hrs per week so they'll drop your hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No comment.

    Pros

    The intention is to care for the customer while leading them on the path to better health which is a great mission.

    Cons

    At times the company gets lost trying to accomplish too many other tasks and the focus is lost on whats important.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more time and money back into developing your people.

    I worked at CVS Health part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work is not difficult to do.

    Cons

    You are treated as an object for the success of your superiors. You do not get any autonomy and I was always told by my supervisor that I did not get paid to think.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to motivate and not berate subordinates.

    Former Employee - Pharmacist in Los Angeles, CA

    I worked at CVS Health

    Pros

    The only pro is that the pay is decent

    Cons

    Dealing with customers, being short staffed, having an organization that doesn't care about its employees

    All advice is always ignored and unheard

  7. I worked at CVS Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    You work around people not much to say I guess good benefits that's about it oh and you learn business so that's a good thing to take with you

    Cons

    Low pay they'll work you to your grave. I had many health issues popping up when I worked there from the stress and having no life from being over worked and alway called because people wouldn't be trained for stuff but would be working I've worked many hours off the clock it's like a unwritten rule after I left my health is 100% now I'm only 24 years old

    I have been working at CVS Health

    Pros

    Putting up with this environment for a period of time will make any other non retail job feel like a breeze once you get out.

    Cons

    The cons depend on management........ seniority is bad, pay is below average, no bonuses, customer service is always fun. Higher management is out for blood if you're not well liked. The list goes on but that's life in retail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on making work flow equal throughout all employees. Seniority is the worst, co workers work better as a team, not whose above who. And lastly, listen and consider to what employees have to say/suggest.

    I worked at CVS Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful employees in store. They hire pharmacy school grads, so it's easy to get immediate experience, compared to most places.

    Cons

    Employees AND customers are stressed. Management harasses you on pharmacy stats yet are always run you short staffed. Forget breaks, lunch, vacation, & they will make you work sick and off the clock.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more staff. Care for the patients because it is health"care". Thank your employees for working OT, through their vacations, etc and for doing a good job, instead of being on them for busywork outgoing phone calls.
